Hassan Whiteside finished with just six points and 10 rebounds on 3-of-7 from the floor in Saturday’s 95-91 win over the Hornets.
That’s the second game in a row that Whiteside has failed to reach double-digits in scoring, and the lowest minute total since the 17 he played back on January third. There was no foul trouble or injury that we know of, so this has to be a little concerning. Dwight Howard had a big game on the other side, so maybe Miami just wanted to try a different look against him. That said, it’s a trend that owners need to keep a very close eye on as his value would take a massive hit if he plays less than 20 minutes per game.
